The street where Chu-Hi lives [Apr. 17th, 2004|04:36 pm]
susan smitten

Friends, have I teased you long enough? Here are photos of my shiny new home, friends, life!

I'll be spending my working life here.

DXB - Dubai International Airport

Burj Al Arab, the world's first 7-star hotel

These camels are taking over. This FIFA one wears the red cap and scarf
of the Emirates cabin crew.

Nissrine, my favorite Moroccan princess, at Dubai Creek with shisha.

This was taken at Heritage Village.

So was this one; it's the Kanzaman restaurant & shisha on the creek.

This was taken from our building. Can you imagine my surprise the first
time I looked out the window and saw this? But this is not MY view...

..This is. This is Sheikh Zayed Road, from the opposite direction of
the above shot, as seen from my 42nd floor bedroom.

And so is this. Pretty, isn't it?

I have a lot more to share, so don't run away...:^)

Those are SO amazing - why in god's name don't you go into photography for a career?

How did you get the streaking car lights effect (slow exposure?) and what camera did you use?

Amazing pictures, Susan. Glad to see that you are living the life you've been dreaming of.

I bet that you're much too busy to miss Kyoto, eh? ;p
